I'd call it fiscally lazy, looking for nice numbers vs detailed analysis. It would be nice to have a running analysis of what we're paying each department on a per-something basis (per capita pop of Ab, per some sort of deliverable or benefit, etc) so that it would be obvious when one government is unnecessary inflating the budget of a department vs other provinces, or conversely if there have been consecutive belt tightening and cuts it might show when 'cutting the waste/fat' is no longer a reasonable promise.
